Peri-peri chicken restaurant Nando’s just announced a kerbside collection service that allows for delivery to your car while you wait from 1 June, as the country moves down to Alert Level 3.

Sit-down meals will still not be allowed in South Africa at Level 3, but meals can be delivered or collected and drive-throughs will now also be allowed. Restaurants – along with bars, taverns and shebeens -  can now also sell alcohol for off-premises consumption.

Retailers like Pick n Pay and Woolworths will also be able to sell hot food, including rotisserie chickens and pies, as well as bread baked in-store, from Monday.

UPDATE: KFC is offering kerbside pickup from Monday – but with a limited menu

Here’s how the Nando's kerbside delivery works:

  • You can place your order via the Nando's app, online or use the call centre number: 087 997 1955 .
  • Select the kerbside option, place your order and enter your car's details (make, colour and registration).
  • Then drive to your selected outlet and park in the designated kerbside spots, or as close as you can. Once your order is ready, it will be brought to your car window.

The eatery will adhere to strict lockdown hygiene protocols.  “All our employees continue to follow the strictest hygiene and social distancing precautions by wearing masks and regularly sanitising their hands,” Nando's said.

It will also resume its normal drive-through and takeaway services from Monday, and you can also order through Mr D and Uber Eats.
